Emilio Hidalgo

Fino Seco Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

What I expect of a Fino. Sherry can be downright refreshing. The yellow apple/hay/bread notes on it all mingle gracefully. The texture is silky satin and there is a certain underlying floral nature that keeps all the other flavors from being stale. It’s like unsweet nectar in a springtime garden. If you could combine a back-to-school vibe with a spring break feeling that’s what I’m picking up here. — 2 months ago

Hacienda San Miguel

Reserva Dolores Hidalgo Nebbiolo 2018

Needs time to burn off the alcohol. ripe fruit with a strong earthiness. Nice balance of tart, fruit and earth with a titch too much oak in the follow through. A little too woody without the fruit kick one might expect from a nebbiolo. — 7 months ago

Love nebbiolos not from Piedmont. Always interesting.

Bodega Weinert

Cavas de Weinert Gran Vino Mendoza Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

Delectable Wine
9.3

A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec, and 20% Merlot that spent nine-and-a-half years in old casks, this wine has already developed an attractive bouquet of undergrowth, dried red fruit, herbs, potpourri, olives and truffle plus a hint of coconut. Gentle on the palate, it is well-integrated and full of flavor. The fine tannins make for a silky passage, leading to a lengthy, bouquet-driven finish. An unusual wine.

Achával-Ferrer

Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Combining grapes from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo, Achaval Ferrer bottled this Cabernet Sauvignon after aging it for 12 months in used French barrels. Deep red with a purple sheen. The nose offers licorice, black currant and white pepper. Firm, grippy tannins set off the core of a fruit-forward palate and a lengthy, smoky finish. Will grow more well-rounded with time.

Las 30 del Cuadrado Cepas Viejas Palomino 2016

Saline ocean breeze, with a touch of orange citrus. This wine is so interesting and delicious. Had a lot of Manzanilla Sherry elements, but had some orange wine notes that make it really user friendly. Damn good juice! — 5 months ago

Mendoza Malbec 2018

Delectable Wine
9.1

A Malbec from old vines in Mayor Drummond, Luján de Cuyo, that spent 12 months aging in one-third new and two-thirds used oak. Bright purple in the glass. The nose features candied plum and jam and hints of pepper and allspice, as well as tomato preserve, vanilla and herbs. Concentrated, substantial and well-balanced, with a light, slightly rustic feel enhanced by the active tannins, which also deepen the profile. Well made in a ripe style.
